Nipponki '46: Deep Blue Fleet #3 "DENSEI"

Carrier Fighter "Densei" (?) Model VI
Span: 11.24m
Length: 11.20m
Weight: 4960kg
Max Speed: 750km/h
Range: 1540km
Armament: 2X20mm, 2X30mm cannons

From Model V the engine changed to turbo-prop.

A carrier fighter based on the Hayate but with contra-rotating propellers, all-round vision canopy, extra armament and more. The nose of Model V reminds me a bit of the Hawker Sea Fury.
